This presents developers with a host of opportunities to develop unique apps with a faster time to market. As a developer one challenge that presents itself is how to ensure a mobile app does not destroy the phone memory, CPU and battery. This is indeed a tricky yet important question that developers need to answer before embarking on publishing an app.  If not, chances are the app will be rejected by customers.  With a little awareness of industry best practices and concepts, developers can avoid incurring unnecessary expenses and the threat of failure.
